East High School Graduates With First Latina Valedictorian
by News

For the first time in the history of Rochester's East High School, a Latin American student is valedictorian.

Crystal Colon addressed her peers and their families at the ceremony Saturday. She graduated as a member of the National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society.
Colon received a standing ovation for her speech at the graduation ceremony.

"Latinos are starting to make their impact on society and I think it was reflected here that in 110 years we finally had a latina student be the valedictorian. So it's very telling of the progress the students are making and the shifts they're making in their successes," said East High Principal Anibal Soler, Jr.

Principal Soler, Jr. said the class of 2013 is the first he's known all four years since becoming principal.
